    HELP-- Stop Taskbar Popping up.

    Hey Everyone

    I have a question for some help on something that is annoying me for a very long time.
    When i have a program open like Teamspeak or Discord and someone types something on chat
    you get a notification update and your taskbar pops up highlighting the icon with the update.

    I would really really like to know how i can disable programs from popping up my taskbar.
    I dont mind having a sound notifications but i really get hate my taskbar popping up all the time.
    I game a lot and in the games i play i have my chats in the bottum and always when i try to click on the chat suddenly my taskbar pops up and i have to open the program first then minimize it again in order to hide the taskbar,
    But before i am then ready to start typing in chat again the darn taskbar pops up again.
    Even getting worse if i am on a busy teamspeak server and my taskbar keeps popping up every 2 seconds.

    Is there a way to disable this feature completely ??
    So no programs opened and minimized will be able to pop up the taskbar at all. ??

    * I have tried to go into notification settings and turn off the notifications for all programs.. But this does not work.

    I very much appreciate the help

    @GizmoTGP, welcome to tenforums.com!

    You could try: Settings/Personalization/Taskbar/'Show badges on taskbar buttons'-Off,

    not sure if it keeps the taskbar from popping up, but it's worth a try.

    Hey buddy.. yea this will activate the taskbar still.. As for as i know there is no conventional methods to completely shut this down.. But i bet there is a way to change this some were in the windows files itself on the C Drive. I just don't know who and i cant find any info on the web.

    Ill just keep searching cause i really wanna have this bar be gone for once haha.
    If someone might know please inform me i would really love to know.

    And thanks for the welcome buddy.. Much Appreciated

    Only other thing I can suggest is turning off notifications on certain programs, or,
    if you want to get drastic, you could Ctrl+Shift+Right Click on the Taskbar and 'Exit Explorer', as long as the games/apps will continue running with Explorer shut down!

    True i could do that but then i wouldnt be able to navigate through the pc anymore other then the stuff i have open at that right moment and i would need a restart of the pc to enable it again [ if Task Manager fails to open ].
    I have game server running on my pc so it not an option for me to try out, i don't think those gamers would like me to restart the servers constantly

    But it could be a quick solution.. But ill keep searching for a permanent one
    Thanks for the advice
